Here is a trivial change that would immediately take care of the
confusion that lead to the top post of this thread:

Exchange the ACTIONS of open <-> import and save <-> export.

That is:

import/export is for XCF.

save/open is for JPEG, PNG, GIF, TIFF, ...

If you think about it for a minute, this is not as ad hoc as it first

ask "how can I undo"? My guess is that generally they make this
mistake once.
